I think it is a myth. As the water temperature drops to 4.2 degrees at the bottom of a lake, fish metabolism slows right down. They are torpid. They need little oxygen and only open their gills occasionally. In mud they would suffocate.

If frogs can freeze right through and survive - what next?

These are Canadian frogs tho! Being experimented upon with a view to space travel!
I don't think a frog could fly a space rocket :tea:
